After you set up a screen lock, you'll also be able to control what info appears on it. Go into Settings, tap on Security, then tap on Lock screen options.

Power Button to Answer/End Phone Calls

I figured there must be a better way to answer a call besides swiping even though I haven't been able to make myself get used to doing this yet. You can use your Galaxy S3's Home button to answer and end phone calls so you don't have to swipe the screen. To enable the feature, go to Settings, choose the Accessibility options and then click to open the Call Answering/Ending settings.

Admin Arsenal

Recently bought this product and it's a very handy tool.  I have used it to push out a lot of software but you can do a lot more with it like inventory hardware and software, remote commands, see and kill processes remotely, and a bunch of stuff I haven't figured out yet.  It's certainly at least worth the 30 day trial if you need to push out a lot of software!

The Secret Life of Numbers

One thing I wish I had gotten really hooked on at an early age in life is math.  Not just adding and subtracting but really getting into numbers.  Now that I work with computers and see how numbers and more tied to everything than I could have imagined when I was younger, I really regret taking the easy road sometimes in school.  Here is an article I wish some educators or young people would take to heart so that they may not regret the same thing I do one day.
